Will I have the same cleaner for each cleaning?
We believe that all our cleaners do a terrific job but, if you prefer the same crew you can request it.
What time will the cleaner arrive?
Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. First cleanings of the day take place at 9:00 a.m. Cleaners should arrive in that time frame. Second cleanings of the day start at 1:00 p.m. Third cleanings start at 4:00 p.m. We do our best to inform you if a cleaner will be running late due to a cleaning prior to yours, which is taking longer than expected. (Commercial work, large clients, other exceptions may apply.)
Do I need to be home?
No, most of our clients are not home when we clean. They hide a key in a secure location or provide us a code for entry. If you work from home or prefer to be home when we clean, we do our best to clean around you.
Who provides the chemicals and equipment?
We provide all our own supplies and equipment to clean your home. If you have a specific request, please let us know.
What about my pets?
We love friendly pets. If your pet is nervous around strangers, please have them in a secure location for our employee’s safety and their comfort. Please notify us if you have pets so we can document it for our cleaners. If you rather have your pet at home, please let us know prior to your cleaning. We don’t want to scare your pets or our cleaners.

Credit or Debit Cards - Invoice will be sent via email the day of cleaning.
Venmo and Cashapp - Send payment the day of cleaning.
Should I tip my cleaner?
Tipping is never expected but always appreciated for exceptional service.
What if I’m not satisfied?
Our work is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. If we fall short in meeting your expectations, please notify us within 24 hours of your cleaning and we will gladly return to re-clean any unsatisfactory areas. Please keep in mind it is common for dust to resettle during initial cleans and deep cleans. If we are unable to satisfy you after our re-clean, we will end our services going forward.
Do you pay for referrals?
Yes! When you send us your first referral and they get a cleaning from us. You get a 25% discount on your next cleaning.
What if I must skip or cancel my service?
We reserve your cleaning just for you and request a 2-business day notice, if you need to skip, reschedule, or cancel. This allows us time to reassign your cleaner to another client to ensure she receives the pay she depends upon. If we receive less than a 2-business day notice or we can’t access your home, it may be necessary for us to charge you a minimum cancellation fee of $50. Cleanings that are rescheduled at the clients’ request are considered a skip and subject to the additional fee.
What if you are unable to enter my home or I turn away service?
If we are not able to enter your home on the day of service or you turn away service at the door, you will be charged the full price of the cleaning. Payment is due online within 24-hours.
Do you work Saturday?
We work Saturday upon request and based on availability of our employees.
